Notes 1/26/07 More stats on women: o It’s thought that there is a close relationship with the number of drinks a woman has and the number of close significant others who are frequent drinkers. o If a woman reports that her partner drinks often, she is more likely to have alcohol problems. o In approximately 63% of battery cases, wives report that their husbands are sometimes, usually, or always drinking before they get violent o Men who are problem drinkers are twice as likely to assault their wives. o Women who experience the highest level of alcohol abuse, is the percentage of the population who is more likely to have a premature birth, miscarriage, still birth, fertility problems, and/or birth defects. Adolescents o Report higher rates of alcoholism than adults. o Report more problems. o Whether or not your parents knew about your first drink is an indicator if you are going to have alcohol problems in college. If your parents introduced you to alcohol, you are less likely to have problems in college. They take away from the “taboo” of drinking.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
